How to invest in megatrends

Megatrends are powerful, transformative forces that could change the global economy, business and society and have been changing the way we live for centuries.

Broad megatrends can’t be captured in a single investment, so we identify investable themes which are driven by one of more of these trends and are narrow enough to determine what falls within the theme but also deep enough to ensure they are diversified.

Capital at Risk: The value of investments and the income from them can fall as well as rise and are not guaranteed. You may not get back the amount originally invested.
